What are your general comments?

"I live in a neighboring state. But I went (car) to philly one day ahead (because of a messy snow storm), stayed overnight at the student guest house, went to interview in the morning and drove back home. First I had my faculty interview (open file) at the downtown hospital and then the student interview (closed file) back at the campus during lunch. There is an essay-you have the whole day to write it. The downtown hospital has many buildings with many names. So leave time, so that when you get there by shuttle, you could ask people and go to the appropriate building on time. They have two curricula which they will show you during the tour in the morning. Be prepared for weather and if you happened to have a downtown interview, have a basic idea of the route to the shuttle stop. Finally, the student guest house - if you have to, then stay with them. The family is very nice. They provide wireless internet, breakfast, ride to the campus in the morning, and they even cleaned the snow off my car. Everything went well except the weather (snow, ice, rain...basically everything you expect). I hope Drexel would accept me (6-8 weeks for the decision). Good luck to all. " Report Response
